Crazy Critters 4-H

On Monday, June 19, the Crazy Critters 4-H Club met together to collect food and animal donations for Animal Ark as our community service project. We also met Sunday, June 10, at the fairgrounds to work the food booth at the spring show for the first half of the day. The kids loved that and learned great lessons in customer service, teamwork, money handling and having fun!
